Airlie Castle

Steeped in history, Airlie Castle makes a dramatic and comfortable venue for the duration of The Open Championship. It has been in the Earl of Airlie’s family ownership since the 16th century and prides itself on its quality of sport and scenery. There are numerous golf courses within striking distance of the castle.

Airlie Castle is a 10 minute drive from Kirriemuir, known as ‘The Gateway to the Glens’ and well served by local airports, 40 minutes from Carnoustie and 90 minutes from Edinburgh and Aberdeen. With well laid out gardens, Airlie Castle today makes an ideal base for the duration of the British Open.

The A90 dual carriageway is easily reached from Kirriemuir. Dundee and Perth have a mainline railway station with regular services to the north and south, including a sleeper service.

Airlie Castle is situated in its own grounds of approximately 10 acres and is approached through the main gated lodge entrance to the Estate. The tree lined drive winds its way passed the walled garden where ample parking and turning area await.

Airlie Castle has accommodation for 14 plus an additional 4 in the adjoining cottage which may be suitable for staff, however it is ideally suited to parties of between 14 – 16.
